hard_math.png.scaled500Math is hard, but plugging numbers into a pre-made algorithm is easy! Here’s the Literally Literate Week 9 Power Rankings. The Playoff hunt thickens with only 5 weeks remaining in the regular season, three teams sit at 4-4 while the top 3 are 5-3 or better.

Tuesday Morning Relief: Straight Scramblin’

 

scrambled-eggs-su-1017334-lReal rough game, this week. Up against some stiff competition in Spacin’ Vaders, I found myself second guessing my QB decision. I had Terrelle Pryor as my Andrew Luck backup, but I dropped him for Carson Palmer on the waivers, who I then dropped for Alex Smith through free agency, who I then ditched ten minutes to kickoff for Geno Smith, who ended up scoring me 2 pts.

How’d those other guys work out?

Alex Smith 21

Terrelle Pryor 15

Carson Palmer 12

I know, right? BRILLIANT!

Can’t say the news got any better when Julius Thomas went down with an ankle injury, and just last night Zac Stacy went down with an ankle injury.

Add to that the fact that Darren Sproles’ fantasy numbers this year are utterly abysmal.

At least I’ve still got Demaryius Thomas in the stable…

Prolly just jinxed myself.

Here’s how this week’s games turned out.

Big ups for Dez Dispenser getting the highest point total so far this year! They had Calvin Johnson and Dez Bryant, who both went nutzo. One on the field, and one on the sideline. Golden Tate got a sick taunt in on the Seahawks, who got disrespected by Steve Smith last week.  They also saw Colin Kaepernick return to form. Toss in the Bengals D with 2 pick 6’s and Darren Mcfadden with 2 TD’s, and 171 is gonna be hard for me to beat in week nine!

dez dispThe spots generally remain the same, and in our ESPN page I’m still in the hunt for the playoffs, so hopefully the wire will be good to me this week. Daddy needs a winning streak!

Ah yes, week 8 is finally upon us, with the Bucs and Panthers squaring off for the Thursday Night Game. With all of the injuries and the Bears, Titans, Colts, Chargers, Ravens, and Texans all on bye, this should be a very rugged week. Cheers to anyone who breaks a hundy!

A Show of Force: Week 8 Power Rankings

Much like Kim Un here, I was only slightly amused by my performance this week. I topped out on points, but lost my RB2 and WR2, which left me scrambling on the waiver wire. I picked up J. Boykin from Green Bay and Roy Helu from Washington to help smooth things out. Darren Sproles coming back should help, and hopefully Zach Stacy will continue to run hard in St. Louis.

With that in mind, here’s how this week’s power rankings shake out for the Literally Literate FFL:
